Exactly one year ago today our family was knee deep in Christmas celebrations at Walt Disney World for Addie’s Make-A-Wish trip. We were at Epcot and had the most magical time meeting Anna and Elsa, Mulan, Baymax, and Sadness. It truly was a trip of a lifetime. As I have sat and reflected the past few days, I can’t help but be so very grateful for such an amazing experience for Addie and our family.
If you noticed, my Spirit Jersey has the amazing Make-A-Wish blue that so many know and recognize. Sales of the Wishes Come True Blue Color Collection have unlocked a US $500,000 donation from Disney to Make-A-Wish. Also, for every Mickey Mouse Vintage Holiday Plush sold through Jan.31, 2021, shopDisney will donate 25% of the purchase price to Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes. Isn’t that amazing?! Not only that but the Disney Parks Wishables: Magic Carpets of Aladdin series is the latest release and the first-ever product from Disney Parks with 100% of the purchase price going to a charitable cause! Help kids like Addie get their Make-A-Wish wishes granted and grab yourself or someone you love some fun gear from shopDisney.
With our incredible Make-A-Wish trip on my mind, I decided to make some of these easy Christmas Mickey Rice Krispies Treats for my Disney-loving Bible study gals. They’re just as fun for kids to eat too! I absolutely would’ve made them for Lawson’s Mother’s Day Out class, except that I’m pretty sure Mathew would sneak a few and I wouldn’t have enough. They don’t require many ingredients and are so delicious.
Here’s what you need for your easy Mickey Rice Krispies Treats:
1| In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add your Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal to the marshmallow mixture. Stir until well combined.
2| Using buttered or oiled spatula evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 inch pan coated with cooking spray or butter. Cool completely. Carefully loosen the Rice Krispies treats from the pan and lay onto parchment paper or aluminum foil. Use the Mickey cookie cutter to cut out your treats.
3| Melt your almond bark according to package instructions. You will need one bowl with chocolate and one bowl of white chocolate. Do not over heat or chocolate will seize. You may under heat and let the warm bowl continue to let the last of the chocolate melt.
4| Dip your Mickey Rice Krispies Treats into chocolate and gently hold as you shake off excess chocolate. Once you’ve dipped them all in chocolate in various ways, use a spoon and drizzle white chocolate almond bark on each Mickey. You will want to drizzle a few at a time and then top with sprinkles before they dry. Let cool and ENJOY those Christmas Mickey Rice Krispies Treats!
